did the belt break or is this regular maint??? it is an interfearance
head , if it broke the valves will all be bent end of that story.
if you have it apart be very careful turning things (you will hit valves) if old belt is still on ,take a paint marker , mark the belt and cam gears and the crank with one dot one the belt edge and gear face. remove belt ,lay new belt edge to edge and transfer marks exactly onto new belt slip new belt onto cams n crank verify everything is matched to old marks if tensioner is adjustable dont make it to tight or it will "sing" this way if it was running when you shut it off it does not matter where the timing belt marks are because nothing should be out time.
hi, just letting you know my timing belt just went on my daewoo lanos. unfortunately it seems in a daewoo lanos that when the timing belt goes, it can do damage to one of the valves. mine is in at the mechanics and i am still hoping that it hasnt done any damage. i was also told that if you have replaced the timing belt and the car still wont start it has definitely done damage to a valve. sorry to give you the bad news!!
It sounds like you have either got a bad problem with the timing marks
as you only need the timing to be out 1 tooth and (nfg) So recheck ALL timing marks( but dont go by some ones pen marks) as you must use the marks from factory only,other wise check spark and wiring plugs,if you have spark then check fuel lines .
But check timing marks first...
there is a special tool to hold gears in correct place on some of these models, but you can hold one cam at a time with a spanner then feed belt on exhaust cam then inlet cam gear
get someone to hold gears in place while you feed belt on.
the inlet cam is more prone to turn off mark more than exhaust.
if you have tensioner that needs retaining pin in when installing
you fit belt while aligning timming marks
fit tensioner as last spot to feed belt on with retaining pin in adjuster
get correct tension on belt by turning water pump so that you can flex (turn) belt 90 degrees only just while using finger and thumb
tighten water pump check flex
check all timing marks are correct
remove retaining pin from auto tensioner
turn motor over a couple of turns by hand observing tensioner arrow should hover around V mark and that all timing marks align up again(after one complete turn)
timming marks on cams face each other 3 and 9 o clock crank mark at about 6 o clock mark in cover and sump auto adjuster arrow should be in v mark to set this requires turning water pump by loosening water pump bolts slightly be warned some times this causes pump o ring seal to leak if turning.
Hi, I have a 1997, Daewoo celio 1,5 I and the cam belt snapped. I dont think that the pistons hit the valves but I cant be sure, I have a new belt and woud like some info on how to go about changing the belt and setting the timing on this car. I am not a novice mechanic but need some advise. Thanks Brent
